New Stony Creek Beer Benefits Save The Sound


Stony Creek Brewery’s latest beer release, a collaboration with a regional environmental nonprofit, aims to help protect and improve the land, air and water of Connecticut and Long Island Sound.

Save The Sound Light Lager, a Helles lager is described as “a bright, crisp beer with a slightly sweet flavor and light mouthfeel”, made with ground malted German malts and Tettnanger hops.

The new beer has been developed in collaboration with Save the Sound, and will highlight the value of shared natural resources and raise funds for the non-profit organization’s mission. For every purchase made, Branford Brewery will donate a portion of the proceeds to Save the Sound.

“Save the Sound and Stony Creek Brewery share a love for Long Island Sound and the outdoors, so it was natural to work together,” Stony Creek founder Ed Crowley, Sr. said in a statement. “When we developed Save the Sound Light Lager, we thought about where it would be enjoyed. This crisp, light lager is perfectly suited for a day enjoying the outdoors. Everyone who buys the lager will help protect the outdoor places they value.”

Save the Sound President Curt Johnson said Stony Creek management “shares our passion for clean rivers and a bountiful sound.”

“It’s a unique way to engage people across the region in protecting the Sound and its rivers, fighting climate change, saving endangered lands and restoring ecosystems,” said Johnson said. “We hope Save the Sound Light Lager inspires people to reflect on the clean water that was used to brew it, the air they breathe the way they enjoy it, and the things we can do together to protect these resources.

The lager is currently available exclusively on tap at the Stony Creek Tavern and select establishments, and will soon be available at Northeast outlets in six-pack and 12-pack options.
